thanks.

On another note I just made a pretty good find on the local craigslist. I picked up another 10lbs Powertank with carrying handle, cylinder boot and a mount for 20$

Its even chrome

Well I am pretty much ready for our trip to moab in a few weeks. I just added a Redneck Ram Hydro assist system.

It is nice to be able to turn with the spools

Here are some dark pics, I will have some better ones soon

Thanks for the kind words.

I am wrapping up all of my odds and ends for our trip to moab. We are leaving friday morning so time is running out

I have my redneck ram hydro assist done, installed a better hand throttle setup, mounted my GPS, and installed some LED rock lights. here are some pics of the updated interior and the rock lights

this pic does not do the rock lights justice, they are really bright

What kind of lever did you use for the hand throttle? I've been looking for the name of that handle so I can order one, I know it's a bicycle brake handle, but I don't know the name of it. . .

Great work, BTW! Toyota's aren't my style, I'm not a big pickup guy after all the trouble I had with my old one, but that is definitely a mean looking crawler! Make sure you get some pics of it showing those rocks and trails who's boss!

That's the one, the dia-tech. I've been looking for that particular one for my hand throttle for a few days now, and couldn't remember the name. Thanks! Can I get that at a local bike shop, or will I need to order it online?
